For a guy who got famous because of a Monica, Matt Drudge sure seems uncomfortable about saying anything about Monica Goodling who continues to add to the case that the Attorney General of the United States lied under oath to Congress in testimony that has "the hearing room generally falling silent on Goodling's every word."

What is Drudge deciding to send his millions of clickers to instead of the big news of the day?

The daughter of the VP had a baby, John Edwards omg knows how to invest properly, and some good news about Iraq.

But the huge story for Drudge is an AP report that Hillary Clinton's campaign manager is advising her to bypass Iowa since a) Obama or Edwards will probably win the state based on a recent poll b) Hillary is going to be in this race a lot longer than just Iowa c) Rudy's team is telling him to do the same thing based on similar polling.

Who is Monica Goodling? She was the third-highest ranking official of the Justice Dept. before she stepped down after US Attorneygate and then agreeing to testify under immunity. Bill Maher ranted about her last month in a clip you can see after the jump.
